Identical usernames are not possible, so reading usernames works.

Ah Patrick, in away, you are wrong. Do you not remember the firetail_madness crisis? How about the Santi one? Two cases where extremely similar usernames resulted in mass panic.

They're not identical. That's merely a glitch. similar =/= identical, therefore, it is still correct to read usernames.

@quote: I have only ever seen Pazx with the polar bear armatar.

Strangely enough, they're right next to each other in the top 100.

Most of you probably haven't been here long enough to remember Ricador. He prominently wore the polar bear armatar before any of the aforementioned users. I also remember a user named kevin44 wearing it for a while.

I'm thinking of not changing my armatar for a while, then this'll be "mine".
Except that's not how it works.

Oh yeah, Cen. Believe me, when you were a mod, I had a hard time telling you apart from Strop.

This. It used to confuse me so much, I don't even know why. But then I see the horse porn, then I know who's who.

I remember pickpocket by that elf dude with a mustache, but when he changed it to the grim reaper thing, I was overly baffled about it, even though I always read names first.

Me, Jeffery's and someone else (I can't remember exactly who) have had this tiger armatar for quite a while now

they're not identical

It is possible to get 'similar' user names, for example, any name with an l, change it with a capital I.

I associate cormyn with the skeleton with the orange background, the one Skeleton_Pirate uses now.
I know that he's using the polar bear now, but, I don't really remember him with it.

Cen = green.
Strop = orange.

Should I be slightly bothered that people can't/couldn't differentiate between Strop and I, or worried that such a large pat of the population is orange/green colourblind?
It was worse with the blank and the starry armatar. I was so modster I got reports before I was a mod because of that.

One of these days, either Strop or I are allowed to get a custom armatar, and we will make sure to make it look nothing like the other's.
And people will still confuse us.
And it will be weird.
And it should have been included in the WoM, why didn't we think of that...
